on weathering spring snowstorm

This could be a lullaby or children’s poem but kind of romantic too…what do you think?    The repeating question and rhythm is similar to a wonderful children’s bedtime book, Where Does the Brown Bear Go? by Nicki Weiss. 

 

where do red robins go

my love, do you know

where do red robins go

when it snows?

 

they hide in evergreen

branches, soft and low

they hide in evergreens

when it snows.

 

but where do sparrows go

my love, do you know

where little sparrows go

when it blows?

 

they don’t mind the cold

watch the birds to know

how to cuddle ~this~ close

when it blows!

blanc fluff dusts tips of

evergreen branches; softens

brittle spikes of frozen grass

a wreath wraps around us

tied with blood red bow

 

 

 

“I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.”  

(God’s words in Jer. 31:3)
